Resume Padding: Just Don't…

Yahoo's CEO Scott Thompson resigned last week after the discovery that his resume contained false information. So the question applies to resume padding in general: is it really worth it? Thompson changed his bachelor of science degree in business administration with a major in accounting, to a bachelor's degree in accounting and computer science with a couple clicks of the keyboard. It got him the job, and it also lost him the job. We can empathize with the man. In a 2010 survey of 1,818 organizations, 69% reported catching a job candidate lying on his or her résumé.

How to Nail the…

The phone screen is the bridge between sending in a resume and performing a live interview. It provides a window into what kind of employee you are, a look at your behavioral tendencies, and an opportunity for the employer to get excited for the official interview. However, it can break a candidate-- the employer may decide that you aren’t the right fit. This is why it is paramount to nail the phone screen. The benefit of the phone-interview is that you could be lounging in your pajamas on your living room sofa, and still have the professionality of a formally conducted live interview. No matter what your situation, you should sound like you are sitting in an office dressed in slacks and a tie.
